of the president and mitt romney. look back down their memory lane of one-on-one debates. "the daily rundown," we'll be back in 30 seconds. >>> on our radar, ballots in the buckeye state a ruling on pennsylvania's voter i.d. law and mitt romney sides with illegal immigrant workers. >>> few first, voters in ohio are casting those ballots today. they are able to vote by mail or in person without giving a specific reason. the first lady is in cincinnati and the the romney campaign will hold a bus tour there. 2008 about 30% of ohio's total vote came in ahead of election day. expect that number to grow. >>> in pennsylvania a ruling is expected on the voter i.d. law. if a judge decides the state has hasn't adequately assisted in getting the identification, he can block the law from being imposed. the judge could leave the law in effect but let voters cast a provisional ballot. >>> jerry brown signed new legislation to let immigrants get driver's license. it covers immigrants who came to the u.s. before they were 16 and meet criteria to apply for a federal work permit program. >>> speaking of those youn
shenanigans, we have a video of a romney volunteer down there saying that president obama is a muslim. it was picked up by an answering machine after the volunteer didn't hang up before moving on to her next call. the clip aired in tampa on a radio station, wmmf. nbc news hasn't independently authenticated the audio. >> you don't want obama. you really don't want obama because he'll get rid of your medicare. you might as well say good-bye to it. yeah, and, i don't know if you've done any research on obama or not, but eggs a muslim. >> well, he is a muslim. that's push polling. you pretend to be polling and all you're doing is putting out the word the guy is a communist. >> would you vote for someone who believes in communist. we're taking a survey. we've been talking about this for a couple years. for some reason the republican party and their conservative allies can't get away from describing obama as muslim, not born here, not believing in america. >> i know, i know, i know this is what they do. the head of florida's gop where the call appears to originate told "the st. augustine re
or the other. that's something to keep your eye on. romney's favorability is moving up, obama's are moving down. mitt romney's winning independents. >> it is just amazing how quickly narratives change in this election. last week, it was, you know, doomsday for romney, then the debate happened. who knows what it's going to be next week. is it still wide open? >> i think it's moved from a race that was heavily tilted toward obama, the president was just beating romney as a campaigner, and the debate has now made it much more of a horse race, and we're likely to see fluidity right to the end and the win may go because we see these numbers move three, four points on a debate, it may be a couple points on the unemployment numbers. the win may go to the guy who has the last big play. who has the last big favorable play. i don't think these debates are fool's gold. i know cornell wouldn' have said that if obama had won. i think they were really important turning point but it's turned it into a much, much closer race. >> cornell, ari, david, thank you. fascinating stuff. >> thank you. >>> let us know w
. >> bring it up to knock it down. to disavow it. in other words, romney, he had a really wonderful opportunity, remember when rush limbaugh said those hateful things about sandra fluke, that georgetown law student, he had a great opportunity to smack down the fanatical fringe. he didn't do it. it was a missed opportunity. doesn't mean romney agrees with the crazy things limbaugh said but he missed an opportunity to assert himself against the fringe and this is an opportunity for romney, if he's got any sense and he's a terribly bright guy, a very decent guy, but he's a bit of a coward where the right wing is concerned. i do hope, it would help romney, but he should stand up in that debate and raise it himself and disavow attacks from five years ago on the president that seem to me to be driven perhaps by race rather than economics. >> we'll see if more does come out in the next half hour or so. again, we'll continue it. gloria borger, paul begala, boyce watkins, eric erickson, thank you very much. 50 million people are expected to watch tomorrow's presidential debate. what presiden
anybody in the romney campaign think they're only down by a point or two in ohio? no. they know ohio is falling into troubled territory. >> and they're pretty far behind in new hampshire. they're fighting a dogfight right now in north carolina. >> yeah. >> it's october 1st. that was a state that among the swing states, that was a state that was supposed to be the relatively easy gift for romney. there's a one or two-point race in north carolina on october 1st. they're facing an uphill slide across the board and they know it. >> by the way, you can't run 30-second ads in enough places to do this. if you're going to win, if you're going to turn things around, i'll say the quote that drives liberals crazy, a rising tide lifts all boats, this first debate on wednesday, it's got to shock the campaign back to life. because if romney does well, you're not going to be able to buy enough ads to do what a great performance by mitt romney would do on wednesday night. that would tighten it in ohio. it would tighten it in north carolina. probably go ahead in north carolina. it would tie it in iow
. the democrats want the president to stand strong. >> but if i'm romney, i go there. floating around saying the president made certain agreements there. i would go there and try to pin him down and try to get him to do that with a rote sum of his report. we'll see how skillful romney is. the advantage we have is, steve is here with us. >> right now there's a romney strategist rushing a memo to mr. romney in his prep room saying, the liberals on msnbc say -- we'll see if they take this. we've got to take a quick break. tonight is probably as big as it gets in terms of the persuadable audience watching tonight to make up their mind between these two candidates. it may not get bigger than it is tonight. we have nbc's chuck today straight ahead with the latest numbers. we've got a lot to get to. this is msnbc's live coverage of the first presidential debate. >> i want you to know that, also, i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. [ male announcer ] wouldn't it be cool if we took the nissan altima and
%. >> peter, when romney was governor of massachusetts, the unemployment rate went down because a lot of people left the state. is he fair to make this point now? >> i think it is fair to say that the unemployment rate has come down simply over the course of this recovery and the bahama presidency because fewer people looked for work. if the same number of people were looking for work today as when mr. obama became president, that number is consistent with my computations. it's important to recognize that this month the household survey for which unemployment rate is computed as opposed to the jobs count and enterprises indicated that about 800,000 people found jobs. that's about 6% increase in the number of people employed, which is an absurd number. no one can believe we have a 135% annual growth rate in employment with the economy growing so slowly. what it appears is a lot of folks out of work have established home-based businesses and they're working on some kind of part-time basis. a reporter that lost his job working as a stringer or something. i don't view the 7.8% as encourag
